The Buildings & Grounds Committee is responsible for maintaining the buildings and grounds of Ascension Parish.  This group maintains and updates a 15-year plan for replacing and upgrading the facilities, as well as identifying parish capital improvement opportunities.  Parishioners with experience in construction trades or engineering would be a great addition to this group!

The purpose of the Education Fund is to provide a process for administering financial assistance to Ascension parishioners, employees, and students to: aid in the payment of tuition for elementary school, high school, and Religious Education participants; foster professional development; enhance educational programs; and meet any other need deemed appropriate within these guidelines. It is the intent of Ascension parish to assure that no child in the parish is denied the opportunity of religious education due to lack of funds. For more information, go to and click on Education Ascension Grants.  This committee meets regularly to review grant requests from teachers, catechists, and parishioners and Ascension tuition assistance to school and RE families.
